John Tierney, D-MA 6th

Mr. TIERNEY. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, this is, in fact, a bill that was presented by the gentleman from Massachusetts (Mr. McGovern) and cosponsored by all of the Members from that delegation.

Mr. Early has, in fact, served a distinguished career in Massachusetts. It was mentioned by my colleague from Utah (Mr. Cannon), he was a Worcester, Massachusetts native, born in 1933. He went through the schools in Worcester and the College of the Holy Cross. He graduated from there in 1955. He served in the United States Navy and after that was a teacher and a coach. He has been a member of the Massachusetts House. He was a staunch Democrat. He was also a delegate to many conventions

and elected to this House in the 94th Congress and served in eight successive Congresses after that.

Mr. Speaker, I yield such time as he may consume to the gentleman from Massachusetts (Mr. McGovern).
